What can we Learn from Mountains?



Despite their beckoning vastness, mountains ask nothing, yield nothing and claim nothing. They neither praise nor admonish (though, admittedly, mishaps and tragedies feel like malevolence) and they crave neither recognition nor adulation, yet they inspire determination, admiration, fear, humility and awe.

...unless its more than 600m high, even a pile of books about mountains is just a pile of books...
